Nice Box

10/27/2008

I came across artist Jenny Brillhart a few years ago while vacationing in Miami. She paints a lot of US1 motels, geometric convergences of shape that occur in buildings, and what appear to be the backs of Southern Florida strip malls. It makes me feel good whenever someone can extract accidental beauty and order from the cracks of the world that weren’t necessarily even intended to be beautiful or orderly.

I really really love her work. She is awesome.

    yes I like this. I agree with the “extrapolate accidental beauty and order from the cracks of the world” comment…. I love photography of random normal everyday stuff eg http://www.reallyjapan.com/index.php?showimage=17
    which shows a picture of some air con towers.
    I see that actually Jenny Brillhart’s work is oil paintings… interesting, its near-photographic.
    So, what do you guys do at the class trip, are you artists, i cant work it out?
